It’s almost overwhelming how many cars are available on today’s market. You’d think by now, car manufacturers and car designers would have weeded out “ugly” cars, but alas, they have not. My dad once drove a Honda insight, and I will be the first to say, it was so ugly.
I’m sorry if you drive that, and I don’t blame you because the MPG was incredible. All that to say, ugly cars still exist. It’s too bad.
However, there are also plenty of gorgeous cars also available, and many of them have reasonable starting MSRPs. With many brands now going all-in on electric, it has given way to more futuristic, modern cars with distinct headlight designs and beautiful digital display setups.
I realize stylish is a relevant term, as everyone’s personal style and design preferences differ, but this list I’ve compiled has 25 cars that I would argue are inarguably stylish. Scroll down the list and take a look for yourself!
1. Ford Bronco
The Bronco is back! Covid and supply chain issues delayed many buyers’ orders, but now that things have calmed down, you’ll start seeing more of the new Bronco on the road. The updated take on this favored American classic is sporty and rugged without being too futuristic.
The basic 2-door 2022 Ford Bronco starts at $28,815 but the price jumps quickly with more doors, bells, and whistles. Its different models, trims and design options allow drivers to make it as stylish as they want.
2. Kia Telluride
Kia has really stepped up their game in the past few years. Its honeycomb grill, sassy headlights, and spacious interior make it a popular choice, especially among moms. I love the modern new logo too. This stylish family-friendly SUV has four trim levels, the highest of which starts at $43,290.
3. Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring Hybrid
Everytime I see a Lincoln, I can’t help but think of Matthew McConaughey. So good job on your advertising, Lincoln! You got me. This beautiful grand touring Aviator comes as a hybrid, making it both fuel efficient and stylish. Starting at $68,680, leather seating comes standard in this 3-row midsize SUV.
I’m personally a fan of the panoramic vista roof shade controls and the soft close doors. The style is in the subtleties, am I right?
4. Hyundai Palisade
Another fan favorite is the Hyundai Palisade. I always tell people this is like the Kia Telluride’s cousin, but it’s just as stylish. The cat-eye-like headlights and the deep cubby space make it both attractive and functional. The highest Calligraphy trim starts at $47,290.
5. Fisker Ocean
This super-modern SUV looks like something you’d see in a sci-fi movie. Its clean edges and all-glass roof remind me of a sportier Tesla. Fisker has created their SolarSky roof to use the sunlight to generate free energy that supports the vehicle’s motor.
You have to get on the waiting list, as it’s not yet available on the market, but the Fisker Ocean is set to start at $37,499, and its premium Ocean Extreme trim starts at $68,999. Production is set to begin later this year.
6. VW Atlas
I love the wide and sporty look of the Atlas, the sharp angles on the trunk, and the headlight design. It’s a very snazzy SUV. Starting at $34,335 MSRP, it has four trims available, with the highest one starting at $52,700.
7. BMW Alpina X7
As BMW puts it, this vehicle is a masterpiece. More than just stylish, it is beautiful. I think sometimes BMWs can all start to look the same because the brand has mastered such a distinct look, but the Alpina carries distinctive details. I especially love the quilting detail on the leather seats and the webbed rims. Its starting MSRP is $141,300.
8. Hummer EV
Discontinued in 2010, the Hummer is making a comeback as an all-electric vehicle. It will debut first as a truck and then as an SUV. Starting at $86,645, it will be produced in four different trim levels. What makes another electric SUV so stylish?
It includes a removable roof that’s reminiscent of T-top muscle cars from the 1970s and 1980s. Its rugged interior, gorgeous display panel, and boxy gear shift add to its heavy-duty yet stylish vibe.
9. 2023 Toyota Sequoia
In case you missed it, the Sequoia is FINALLY getting a very overdue redesign next year. It now has a beefed-up front grill, a hybrid option, and an overall sportier feel. It’s definitely a heavy-duty SUV which makes it an attractive, more stylish alternative to the Ford Expedition. There are five trim levels, with the lowest one starting at $59,795.
10. Acura MDX
The Acura MDX just got a refresh this year. It’s another option for a luxury midsize 3-row SUV. The front grill is shaped like an upside-down, skewed pentagon, and the headlights are edgy slits that compliment the grill well. Its interior color options include a gorgeous tan leather and the moon roof opens up the entire cabin.
The four tailpipes in the back are a nice exterior touch. I’d drive this car any day!
11. Kia Sorento PHEV 2022
Another redesign, the new Kia Sorento hybrid, is very stylish. And I would not have said that in years’ past! Its new logo is prominently displayed on both ends of the vehicle, and the “Sorento” written out along the trunk fits the car’s aesthetic well.
The wrap-around tail lights are very sporty. Inside, the leather stitching on the dash adds a nice touch, and the captain’s chairs and gray leather trim add a timeless look. It has a starting MSRP of $45,190.
12. Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The Grand Wagoneer is Jeep’s take on the suburban, and its interior is really impressive and luxurious. What makes it so stylish? Aside from the gorgeous camel leather quilted seating, the wood finishes on the center console and the second screen above the glove box make it pop.
Its MSRP starts at $88,640 but can easily surpass $100,000 after extra features and packages are added. Jeep announced a Grand Wagoneer L trim for 2023, adding a foot in length to the 2022 Grand Wagoneer model.
And, as a side note: if you love the look of the Grand Wagoneer but don’t love the MSRP, consider looking at the smaller Wagoneer model. It may be more suitable for your budget.
13. Mercedes G-wagon
The G 550 SUV’s style speaks for itself, but I especially can’t get over the tall, boxy shape of the car and the center console. I’m not surprised this is a go-to vehicle for so many high-income drivers (it has a starting MSRP of $131,750).
What makes the G-class so stylish? Its beautiful design and luxurious finishes, along with the rack across the front grill, is a nice touch of ruggedness. I usually wouldn’t be a fan of so much chrome, but on the G-wagon, it just works, you know?
14. Rivian R1T Truck
The Rivian R1T to me, is like the cool new kid who moved into the neighborhood, and everyone wants to be his friend. With a starting MSRP of $67,500, this fully electric truck has a gorgeous, large display screen, and the headlights in the front include one long bar across the front.
It almost reminds me of an Autobot from the Transformers movies. It’s stylish, sporty, and fuel efficient.
15. Ford Maverick
The Ford Maverick is what my husband calls a “fun-sized” truck. It’s a smaller truck, but the design is incredibly stylish. It looks much more aesthetically appealing than your average small work truck. It’s also fuel efficient, getting 42 mpg.
Stylish Electric Vehicles
16. Ford Mustang Mach-E
The Mustang Mach-E is one of my favorite electric SUVs available today. It is the perfect blend of electric/futuristic and modern/trendy. Plus, you can’t ignore the fun mustang logo on the trunk. It has a starting MSRP of $43,895.
17. BMW iX
This is essentially BMW’s all-electric take on its popular X5 SUV. What makes the iX so stylish is its fancy, futuristic design. It’s comparable with other electric SUVs like the Fisker Ocean, which also made this list.
The iX starts at $85,095 and has sharp angles all over the exterior, along with some dramatic lines up the hood that draw the eye to the brand’s iconic logo. Its gorgeous interior seat material and flush door handles add to the overall smooth style of this eSUV newcomer.
Stylish sports cars
18. Chevrolet Corvette ZO6
I realize the Corvette doesn’t need an explanation when it comes to looks, but the ZO6 is absolutely stunning. Starting at $106,395, the 2023 model has an exotic, sharp design. The interior is anything but mundane.
The gear shift and display panel are angled towards the driver. The microsuede accents and carbon-fiber interior packages add to this iconic model’s style.
19. Lexus LC
The Lexus LC never gets old. Its smooth and lavish interior and exterior design make it an incredibly classy and stylish sports car. The base model starts at $94,125. The touring trim level includes beautiful leather upholstery and a faux-suede headliner, both of which add a bit of flare to the stylish interior.
20. Lotus Emira
Coming Spring 2023, the base edition of the Lotus Emira starts at $74,900. The black leather and technical fabric trim come standard, as does the black leather steering wheel. Black leather seems like it should be the standard for all sports cars. Am I right? Its aerodynamic design and fun rims add extra dazzle to this gorgeous sports car.
21. Ford GT
The 2022 model pays homage to the GT40 that won the Le Mans race in the 1960s. Perhaps beyond stylish, its sporty and retro design is sexy. This street-legal racing supercar starts at $500,000. The paint finishes include options for a glassy carbon finish and stripes that run over the top of the car.
22. Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing
Finally, rounding out the sports car section of this list, is the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing. What makes it so stylish? Well, for one, its trim upgrades include high-performance sport seats and sueded microfiber interior upholstery.
I also love how the headlights go down the side of the front grill for added detail. Its display includes a lap timer feature, which is fun for sports car aficionados. The base model starts at $87,090.
Stylish Luxury vehicles
23. Porsche Panamera
A friend of mine drives a Panamera, and even riding as a passenger in the backseat, this car makes you feel like a million bucks. I love, love, love this car, even though its mid-trim levels start at about $107,000.
What makes the Panamera so stylish? 2022’s models offer a new platinum edition package, which includes black exterior trim, unique 21-inch wheels, and an updated infotainment system.
The interior design makes you feel like you’re in a $100,000 vehicle, and its sport seats have 18-way adjustability. The spaciousness of the Executive models makes it feel both stylish and high-end.
24. Jaguar XF
My husband has always said if he could buy any car in the world, it would be an XF. Starting at $46,450, this luxury car gives off serious James Bond vibes without the price of an Aston Martin.
Why is the Jaguar XF stylish? I think the exterior of this luxury vehicle is a bit more understated, which some would argue is the essence of sophistication––being expensive without really showing off.
The center console was redesigned for 2022. The stitching on the gear shift is a nice detail, and the interior overall is just as understated as the exterior.
25. Bentley Flying Spur Hybrid
Last but most definitely not least is the Bentley Flying Spur hybrid. The brand’s first plug-in-hybrid starts at $210,600 and boasts many of the iconic features and distinctions known to this model. Its interior is undoubtedly stylish, with unique diamond-pattern quilted stitching and wood paneling trim throughout.
If I had to choose a color combination for the exterior/interior, I would probably go with the Tungsten blue and the camel leather seat trim.
